Street Tree Planting
Street Tree Planting Program
The Spring Tree Planting Program will no longer be offered. The decision was made based on lack of participation and the fact that Fall is a much better time to plant a tree and have it survive.
The City of Creve Coeur Public Works Department offers a tree planting program for residents and subdivisions. In a public/private partnership, the city pays 50 percent of the cost of planting trees in the public rights of way and the resident pays 50 percent.
How to Participate
To participate in the program:
- Select your tree preference(s) from the list below. Trees are approximately 1.5" to 3" in caliper depending upon the type of tree and 10' to 12' tall.
- Fill out a Street Tree Planting Application and pay 50 percent of the cost of the tree. The resident's share per tree has been set at $130.00. Submit the application with your check, made payable to the City of Creve Coeur, to the Public Works Department.
- At a later
dateyou will receive a stake provided by the city which will be used to mark where you would like the tree(s) planted. Location(s) will need to be verified by city staff to ensure compliance with planting guidelines.
- The city's contractor will plant the tree in the public right-of-way. Trees are planted in the fall (late October/early November).
